We Can't Do It Without You

By Jennifer Poenix

KAXE's fall fundraiser begins in a few weeks on Sunday, October 25th, during "Backporch Harmony." It's going to be shorter than our past fall fundraisers, which have traditionally been twelve days. This one is going to go just over six, yet we still need to raise the same amount of money. Our goal is $50,000.

We hope you, as a listener, will enjoy a shorter fundraiser. We're pretty sure we, as a staff, will. Looking at the public radio fundraising scene in general, KAXE has definitely been on the longer end of things. Some community radio stations have even started doing one-day fundraisers.

Of course, each community radio station is unique, and therefore, they have unique fundraising styles too. We've prided ourselves on our fundraisers at KAXE, thinking we keep them more fun than you'll hear anywhere else. We plan to keep them that way, but twelve days is a long time. So, wouldn't it be great if we could reach our goal in less time?

It's something worth trying, and we'll see how it goes.

If you wish to pledge before the fundraiser, your contribution will be put towards the goal. You can pledge online, or call 218-326-1234 or 800-662-5799.

Thank you.
